Also called Irish oats, steel-cut oats are whole oat groats cut into smaller pieces to reduce cooking time. Oats are nutritional powerhouses, rich in soluble fibre and phytonutrients.
Whole oats are shining stars among cereal grains. They are high in calcium, thiamine, and iron and contain the most soluble fibre of any grain. Whole oats include the antioxidant avenanthramide, which clinical studies show helps protect against some cancers and heart disease. Oats also have anti-inflammatory properties.
At Grainworks, farming is their passion, family, and foundation. Their commitment to healthy foods and a healthy planet started with their great grandparents’ homestead over a century ago. Today, they grow Certified Organic, Non-GMO grains and legumes on some of Canada’s most fertile farmland.
Grainworks knows great food springs from the good seeds sown in harmony with nature. It all begins with the best seed, carefully tended and harvested. If it can’t be grown here on the prairies, they have searched far and wide for organic farmers and suppliers in other climate and soil zones that share their passion for great food and a healthy earth.
